If you’re a fan of juicing, you’ll definitely be on board with souping, the latest detox trend. Why drink cold juice in the winter? Go for warming soups this time of year! A soup-only cleanse offers a number of nutritional benefits while keeping you satisfied. Packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber, soups are filled with superfoods that can help you battle inflammation, cleanse your colon and reduce oxidative stress. Plus, most soup recipes are versatile, allowing you to swap in different ingredients and seasonings according to your taste.
Ready to stir the pot? Here’s a 3-day detox meal plan by our Senior Editor Ashley Nickelsen:
Breakfast: Energizing Green Bone Broth
Lunch: Easy Chicken Bone Broth
You may think of “broth” as just a soup base, but it actually makes for a tasty meal on its own. This simple recipe is full of flavor, and the vegetables offer up vitamins that other broths may not contain.
Breakfast: Vegan Butternut Squash Soup
Light yet satisfying, this butternut squash soup will help you start your day right. Squash is full of vitamins and phytochemicals that your body needs. This recipe is a great balance of savory and sweet with flavors from the squash, coconut cream, and vegetable broth all working together in harmony.
Blending up this soup for a midday meal is so simple and full of flavor, thanks to the miso! It’s an especially great choice if you have digestive issues since this recipe doesn’t call for common, powerful additions like onions and garlic.
Dinner: Broccoli Basil Soup
Breakfast: Cauliflower Corn Chowder
Corn isn’t typically a breakfast food, but this soup changes everything. It’s delicious chilled or warmed up, and the sweetness of the corn (which is packed with the carotenoids that keep your eyes healthy) is a nice alternative to that sugary syrup you usually drizzle over your pancakes.
Dinner: Detox Asian Veggie Hot Pot
